Quaint, historic and close-knit are three adjectives to describe Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena. The neighborhood, as its name implies, is a collection of historic bungalows built in the craftsman style popular during the Arts and Crafts Movement in California.
The sixteen-block area, bordered by Orange Grove and Washington boulevards and Lake and Hill streets, was designated as a Landmark District in 1989 to preserve the historic significance of its homes. The area that would become Bungalow Heaven was first annexed into the city in 1906.
The Gamble House is the most prominent example of Arts and Crafts architecture in Pasadena, but the homes in Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena, illustrate the way ordinary families of the period lived, according to the neighborhood's website.
As written on the Bungalow Heaven website: “The bungalow was a practical choice for these new homes for a number of reasons. The single-story structure was especially suited to a warm climate, with verandas for outdoor entertainment and overhanging eaves and multiple windows to provide shade and cross-ventilation in the days before air conditioning.The modest size proved sufficient for young families who had no need for numerous bedrooms, large entertaining halls or servants’ quarters. …” The development of Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena, was part of the city's boom that saw its population quadruple in size between 1900 and 1920.
